Kick Off the Holiday: It’s Giving Tuesday


On Dec. 3, kick off the holiday giving season by supporting the Earth Institute on the second annual #GivingTuesday. Giving Tuesday is an initiative of the UN Foundation and the 92nd Street Y that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday and unites the global giving community in a day of giving back. On this national day of giving, we hope you’ll consider supporting your favorite Earth Institute programs and help provide the tools and resources our scientists, researchers and students need to continue to create solutions to the complex problems our Earth faces. Your Giving Tuesday contribution will support research and outreach across our areas of focus: water; climate and society; energy; urbanization; hazards and risk reduction; global health; poverty; food, ecology and nutrition.Click here to find out more about Giving Tuesday and the Earth Institute.
